Attend free-of-charge workshops and masterclasses with high-profile artists featured in the 2018 BBC Proms season

BBC Proms Sessions

BBC Proms Sessions, run in partnership with Royal Albert Hall Education & Outreach, are a series of free workshops and masterclasses which offer young people from all musical backgrounds the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence through working with some of the fantastic artists appearing at the Proms. This year’s Proms Sessions will include a chance to learn performance tips and techniques from guitarist Miloš Karadaglić on Monday 30 July (open to 14-25 year-olds) and a workshop with English folk group The Unthanks who will share their music and experiences of life in the music industry on Wednesday 1 August (open to 14-21 year-olds). Participants will also receive an exclusive ticket offer to the Prom featuring the artist.  Find out more.

BBC Proms Inspire Day

Our BBC Proms Inspire Day on Wednesday 22 August will bring together young composers aged 12 to 18 from across the UK to take part in a range of activities including song-writing, improvisation and score-based composition. Participants will also receive mentoring from our team of friendly Inspire Ambassadors (previous winners of the Inspire Competition) and will get the chance to meet and learn from leading composers. There will be something for everyone, whether an experienced composer or a beginner who is curious to find out more! Participants will be reserved a space at the free Inspire Concert at the Radio Theatre and will receive two free Promming passes to Prom 54 the same evening at the Royal Albert Hall. Find out more.

NYO Young Promotors

Join musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain at a unique and friendly event for teenagers on Saturday 4 August, hosted by the NYO’s Young Promoters. The event is free and suitable for ages 12-18 and will be a great chance to find out about the music in the evening’s NYO Prom and nab yourself a ticket (the first 100 young people to arrive by 5.25pm will have the option of buying a guaranteed promming ticket for the concert).
